Another busy day-I got a lot of my errand running done and hope to get all the packing done tomorrow. I also have to cook as it is a bit challenging to cook meals in the tiny galley in the mh. Hoping the weatherman is wrong and we don't have rain the whole trip. We have been so dry and now it looks like this may be a rainy week! If so, I won't complain.
We said goodbye to another couple today. They are Canadian and only come down for a month twice a year. This trip we have seen them only twice. His health is not great so never sure if they will make it down again so enjoy whatever time we can spend together. They were the 1st couple to befriend us when we came to our camground down here in 2001.
If I don't find time to get back on for a few days, will catch up with everyone after we return next weekend.

I was a bum on Fri-spent a last day with my friends who leave for NY on Tues. We had a blast going to flea markets and thrift stores-doesn't take much to keep us occupied!
Today DH & I worked on cleaning the house. We finally closed the windows and turned on the a/c-it has been 89 the past couple of days and it isn't fair to make DH suffer with the heat when he continues to have hot flashes. I ran errands this afternoon-what a zoo out there as it is Bike Week and traffic is bad. There was a wreck near our community and traffic was backed up when we were coming back home. We hear 2 bikes hit each other. We saw them load one bike into a truck and a friend said they thought one of the riders broke their arm. Pray no one gets seriously hurt. They are calling for about 250,000 to 300,000 people to show up over the 4 days in our small town of about 20,000. Hotels are full and the restaurants are loving in. By tomorrow afternoon they will pretty much be gone and things will be back to normal.
Have a beautiful Sunday.

Yesterday it was really doggone windy in the afternoon and early evening. I didn't notice, but someone told me today that you couldn't even see the mountains in the afternoon because of all the dust blowing around. (Funny that I didn't notice that because I love our mountains and generally do look at them when I'm driving, but not yesteday.) The wind was so strong that I only had my cooler on for about half an hour to cool the place down because the way it was banging around up on my roof...I was afraid that it would break! Today has been much nicer, hardly any wind at all.

Last night and this morning I was really considering giving one of my cats away. She'll stand in the small litter box by the two bedrooms, right at the edge of the box, so that when she urinates she'll just totally miss the box and get it all on the carpet. Not all the time, but enough to be a big problem for me when I think about the fact that I was evicted from an apartment once because of having a cat who would frequentely use the carpet instead of the litter box. I talked to a friend about it at work this morning and decided that before I decide to give this cat away I'd go to Wal Mart and try to find a taller plastic box that I could use as a litter box. I found a really good one that fits nicely into the same space that the old box was in so I think that I'm going to be able to keep this cat. (Hooray)

My computer crashed right before I left to go to the concert on Tuesday and I ended up having to reinstall the software after I got home, and then again the next day. I goofed when I was trying to back files up and I lost almost all of the music that was on the computer. I can get a lot of it back because I purchased it at amazon.com and it's on their cloud drive, but there were also a bunch of CD's that a friend had loaned me and I had copied them onto my computer. That friend no longer lives here so I'm out of luck there...except that they are all on my iPod. I'm thinking about uploading them to Amazon's cloud drive, downloading them from the cloud drive to my iTunes, and then deleting them off the cloud drive. (You can only store so much uploaded music unless you want to pay for storage space, which right now might actually be a decent idea. Have a backup besides my iPod and iTunes.) What a pain in the neck...but if that's the worst thing in my life today, I think I'm going to be just fine.

I hope that you have all had a wonderful week and have plans for a fabulous weekend.



There was much rejoicing!

Good Morning:

Our SIL came over yesterday to stay with Vic for an hour while I ran a couple of errands. Vic is still so weak I didn't want him in the house alone. He only got up a couple of times during the night the night before last, so that's good. We watched TV together for a couple of hours.

Wishing you are all well and safe.

Gail

Enjoy each day.

DH & I worked more on the yard today. He trimmed the shrubs on the west side of our house and I gave some ornamentals a nice haircut. They had grown so large they were covering our yard lights so now they are shining bright tonite. I also trimmed our robellini palms and pulled off some of the old trimmings. They have long stickers that will really spike you if you are not very careful so I have a few wounds tonite. I got all the trimmings picked up-no fun getting all that out of the rocks. Even found time to go to the pool for a 90 min workout this afternoon and it felt good.
Taking a day off tomorrow to visit with friends who are heading north on Tues.

Another good day to work out in the yard. Got half a large flower bed weeded while Bil sprayed outside the fence (next to the hay field) & the drive way before the wind came up. Then trimmed the lilac bush by a window & watered the herbs we'd set out. Just have a few more seeds to plant, both vegetable & flower. Of course, more weeding, and some chicken wire to put around a blueberry bed. I do good until after my shower when I have a hard time staying awake & I'm mananging to get the 8 hours of sleep each night & no dreams either. But my strength is coming back.

I hope everyone had a good & safe day!

SRivers - so sorry about your hand.

We had rain last night. The shift in weather caused pain in my injured shoulder and I had to take a pain pill last night. I always hate the after effects of pain meds. Hope you all have a good day.

Linda that was wonderful news about your daughter. Praying that things continue to go well for her.
Gail I continue to pray for you and Vic. Please know that we are all out here for you. Take care of yourself-you are going to need your strength thru all of this.
Darla I am so happy for you. It is great to have your own place and you got in so much faster than you originally thought you would. God is working for you so be patient and things will continue to fall into place for you.
I have been enjoying the cooler weather and trying to get my yard work done. DH has been feeling better this week so he has been helping some. Today he trimmed the shrubs out front and I had the job of cleaning it all up. That is quite a chore as it is all rocked so had to sweep and blow till I got it on the street and driveway and then I could sweep it up and bag it. Hoping tomorrow to get the shrubs on the west side of the house done. Vicky & I have also been working in the park gardens and have most of that done. Trying to get all this done before the real heat comes.

Gail, my prayers are with you. Just make sure that you take care of yourself along the way. I really wish there was somethihng I could do to help you.

We've been working out in the yard. This time I planted some herbs all over also. Fixed up 14 new hanging baskets. Bill thinks that he made them where the wind can't knock them off but our wind does get pretty strong any more. Got most of the garden out & we're on the downhill part of cleaning/weeding the flower beds. Just want to get to the maintaining part.

He's ready to go to the auction so will try & get back on later. Hope everyone has a good & safe day!

I had such a hideous day at work, but it's all okay in the end because a couple of work friends and I are going to see Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers in a couple of hours. I'll be taking tomorrow off from work because the concert starts after my bedtime. emoticon I think we're going to have a really great time.



There was much rejoicing!

Gail - I am still praying for Vic and for all of your family. A personal prayer for strength for you.

Received good news today. My youngest daughter's biopsy turned out well. She does not have cancer although she will be having tests every six months for the next year. We hope that she will be fine. Very happy that things are looking bright today!

Oh Gail, this must be so very hard for you. You have fought so hard to make Vic's life something other than just the life of a sick man waiting to die, but now he's finally accepting that this is what he is and I know it must be breaking your heart. I know it's a little early to be talking like this, but if you ever feel like you need to "talk" to another widow please feel free to shoot me a SparkMail. My situation was very different from yours, but loss is loss and it always hurts like hell. I want to offer you any support that I can, and you and Vic will continue to be in my prayers. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

As for me, I got my first really good night of sleep in (literally) months last night. I think I only woke up one time during the night and I slept until my alarm clock went off, which is kind of rare for me. I'm hoping for another night like that tonight. Tomorrow I'm going to a concert (Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers) with some friends from work. Then I'll be off work on Wednesday because the concert doesn't even start until after my bedtime.

emoticon I hope that the rest of you have a really great day tomorrow.

There was much rejoicing!

Hello Friends,
Praying for you and Vic and your entire family Gail. I know how I felt when they had to put my Mom on Hospice and I cried. I will pray for peace for you and Vic as you go through this time and they will make him comfortable as they did for my Mom. My heart and prayers are with you.

I am enjoying my new apt. It is so nice to have a place of my own again. It has hardwood floors throughout the whole place except the bedroom has carpet. I still have to save more money to move my stuff from Oklahoma and may be June before we can do that to have enough money for the gas for the truck, Caitlin's car and staying overnight. So just going to save as much as I possibly can out of my check. Got a few pictures hung but plan to hang more when I can get my stuff from Oklahoma. Hope everyone has a good day!

Good Morning:

Last week Vic agreed to call in hospice. They came twice, once to sign him up and once for his nurse and social worker to meet him. They are due to come in tomorrow as well. It's been very difficult, very difficult. He is comfortable and with the sulfur medication seems to be beating the rare bacterial infection down. However, he has stopped eating and is wasting away. If he doesn't eat he will continue to grow weaker and weaker. It doesn't appear his appetite will return and my heart is braking for him.

I haven't wanted to go on and on with the daily trials and tribulations so I haven't been posting. I'm doing what I can reading and playing computer games to keep me from obsessing. With his sulfur medication every 6 hours and his other meds twice a day it's hard to get in enough sleep.

Linda: I'm praying that all goes well for your daughter. You and she are in my thoughts.

G.


Enjoy each day.

I'm back. Had a great trip to Key West. Check out my blog for pics. Trying to get rested back up-didn't get a lot of rest but it was only 3 days so now it is back to the grind. We got some much needed rain over night. Abbie was freaked out by the thunder and kept us awake for over an hour in the middle of the night.
Have a great week.
Pat

SRivers - I would be terrified if I was in the tube and they forgot me. UGH! That would be a nightmare.

Vali_T - sorry about the foot pain. I can imagine that would be very painful.

SRivers1, forgetting that you were in the MRI tube and leaving you there was unforgivable! I hope that person got reprimanded and hasn't done it to anyone else. I can see why you'd be a little gun shy about the MRI machine after that. emoticon

Yesterday at work I moved most of our specimens into our new used refrigerator, but when I slid one of the metal drawers in (luckily one that was empty at the time) it fell of its track and the track actually became disconnected from the wall of the fridge. I couldn't figure out how to get the track attached again so I asked one of my coworkers to help me figure it out. (I'm not very mechanically minded.) He propped the metal drawer against the other side of the fridge...and then dropped it on my foot! So yesterday my foot was really hurting and when I got home from work (and the grocery) it was a bit swollen. Luckly I didn't need an MRI for that, just used a couple of ice packs on it while I was reading before I went to bed. It doesn't really seem particularly swollen today, just a little bit bruised, and it doesn't hurt nearly as much as it did yesterday. Some days I just feel like my entire life is one long series of traumatic accidents...

I've got to tidy my apartment up a bit because sometime next week the apartment people are going to come and turn my cooler on. I'm hoping they'll come on Monday or Tuesday because I'm in building number 5 (of 60 or 70 buildings) and my building is very close to the main office building. It doesn't really matter that much when they come because it hasn't been that warm yet but the earlier they come, the less I have to worry about whether or not the kitties get spooked and try to run out the door when they come.

Anyway, that's all that's going on here right now. I hope that everyone is out having a wonderful weekend.

There was much rejoicing!

It got down to 38 last night but is supposed to get up to 78 this afternoon. We've got he front , the back & just behind the house weeded & pruned. Bill's got the tomatoes, onions, green peppers, bannana peppers & strawberrys planted. I got 2 more blueberry bushes planted, making a total of 12. He's got to put a chicken wire fence around them to keep the rabbit out. Now we have to finish planting the rest of the garden stuff & the flower & gourd stuff. And, of course, finish the weeding. I'm hoping that our gardens do better this year & we can all have a great harvest.

Darla, glad things are falling into place for you. just take things slow on the relationship side & make some good friends to do things with.

Shivers I hope that you get better soon. Summer is coming & that should be a fun time.

Kurt, I was thinking of you. I hope a great job falls in place for you. One where you'll be happier.

Hope everyone has a good & safe day. Bill's ready to go outside & start working!

Thank you Val. I get nervous as I was left inside of an MRI machine as the person that was suppose to be there left for a meeting and forgot that I was in there. But, this time it was much better.

Today was not a good day for me my hand was really swollen and painful. The Doctor did say that I have arthritis in my hand also. So, I took it easy all day.

Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Linda! I've been praying for your daughter. I hope that when she gets the final diagnosis it's good news. (I wish Spark had an emoticon that showed crossed fingers...)

SRivers1, the first time I had an MRI I was so darn sick with my first MS episode that I didn't even get concerned about the enclosed space issue. (In subsequent MRI's it has bothered me quite a bit so I always lie in that tube and practice relaxation techniques.) That first time I was so darn sick (think that's the reason why...) that I felt like all of those noises were kind of musical in a strange sort of way. I've had a couple more now and I just think that the dang thing is noisy as heck now, no music involved in any way that I can tell. Anyway, I hope that your doctor(s) get some useful information from your MRI. I have to have another one early in June...maybe this one will be musical again...

Darla, I'm so happy to hear that things seem to be working out for you with this apartment. I'm sure you remember how worried I was about you when you first went into the shelter and I'm so very glad that I was worried for no reason. You seem to be turning this whole episode into a positive thing in your life and I'm happy for that, too. Keep your positive attitude and we'll all say a few prayers that things keep working out just fine for you. (And by the way...I'm not ticked off at your son anymore for making you move into the shelter. Now I feel sorry for him becaue of his cracked ribs...)

I hope that the rest of you are doing well and I hope that Kurt will chime in with an update soon. I hope everyone has a marvelous weekend.

There was much rejoicing!

I don't know whether all of my daughter's news will be good or not. But took her to the doctor today regarding the PCOS she has had for years. The condition is doing much better. Also her liver enzymes have improved and she has lost a few pounds. I don't know whether her cancer diagnosis is malignent or benign. We will find that out on Tuesday. However, I am happy with the good news received today.

Thank you Linda. Had MRI today will not know results till next week. Have one more test before I go in and see the doctor. Really tried as they had to give me meds so I could do MRI. I do not like tight confined spaces.

I hope all are doing good.

I got an appt. for the Nerve test but, it's not till the 9th of May. I had to call them this morning since I never got a call back. My Hand Specialist office called and I let them know also that I couldn't get in any sooner. I am hoping that maybe the MRI will show something and I will get this taken care of sooner. I have an appt to see my Hand Dr. on the 14th of May to go over all the test results. I have an appt with my Regular Dr. on May 7th for a Physical.

Everyone stay well and have a great week.

Hello Friends,
My apt is being inspected today! I am so excited! i am getting donations from here and another company is also providing things! So I will be set up! I have my stuff from here, my stuff at my son's and my stuff in Oklahoma. But I can't get my stuff in Oklahoma until next month when my son's ribs heal from his snow boarding accident. Then I will finally have all I need! This place has been a blessing and I do have all I need! So happy I will finally get to move in if it passes inspection but I am sure it will. Hope everyone has a great day!

Well, I saw the doctor today and he did x-rays. The X-ray showed a couple problems with my wrist that I had no idea about but, thought the pain was related to my hand. I have a bone spur and calcification starting. Also, I have bones that are jagged. The doctor also said that I may have carpal tunnel also. But, the lump in my hand is call Dupuytren's Disease.

So, Other than all of that I am good. I get my MRI done on Thursday. I also have to get a Nerve Test done. I have a call in for that and I am just waiting a call back.

I hope everyone has a great week.

I am trying to eat healthier today. I have done pretty well so far. One of my sisters in law and I had a long conversation this morning that kept me away from the refrigerator.

I plan to get on the treadmill later.

Darla hope things finally come together for you this week and you can get into your apt.
Gail it was great that you got to park in their lot-hail damage is a real bear. I got caught in a hailstorm once-only about a mile from home but didn't beat the storm!!!!
Weather was absolutely gorgeous today. DH didn't really get to enjoy it-another rough day. Hoping soon that he gets over this radiation. Dr keeps saying it just takes time to get out of the system.
I did go to the pool this afternoon-haven't been making it as often as I planned but hopefully will be able to go more from now on.
Have a great week.
Pat

Good Morning:

It was raining and thundering all night so I got precious little sleep. Today we might have golf ball sized hail. We didn't want our car to get hail damage so I called the local movie theater that has covered parking and asked if I could pay to park there. The manager said that they could assume no liability, but I was welcome to use their facility. When I asked how much it would be he said, " Don't worry about it. Just buy something at the concessions next time you come to the movies." I thought that was just outstanding. Don't you agree?

Gail

Enjoy each day.

We had high winds & 2 1/2 inches of rain yesterday. The winds very high this morning & we're supposed to have stron rains on & off all day today. The creeks & rivers are over flowing. But at least we didn't have the storms Kansas had.

Hope everyone has a good & safe day!

Hello Friends,
Glad everyone is doing as good as you can! I have been so busy trying to figure out everything for my apt that it has been overwhelming at times. Lots of meetings and now we are down to just getting the apt inspected by the housing authority and still was not done yesterday so hopefully Monday. he has lots of messages from the apt complex and from me! I am just anxious to get in it and start getting everything situated. I have all my stuff here at tthe homeless shelter, stuff at my son's house and then my storage buiding full of stuff too. My son broke his ribs snowboarding for his first anniversary so we have to wait for his ribs to heal which will be next month before we can go and get the stuff in Oklahoma. The guy I was seeign here was very critical of everything I had been through and just really controlling so we had a knock down drag out fight and now he can't talk to me or me to him. I am seeing a much better man that is nicer to me and treats me so much better! He is 52 and has raised his son a lot like I did my kids. We have a lot more in common and he is really funny! I told him things had to go slow and he said well I am slow! lol Good response! Hope everyone has a good weekend!

Gail I hope that you are able to get ahold of things-I know how easy it is to plunge into the abyss. Know that we are thinking of you and prayers are coming your way for you and Vic. I have been there too many times. There were days I would have gladly strangled dad but oh how I miss him now! (I really would not have-but it always felt good to say so). Now there are days I would like to shake DH. We got thru radiation but it seems he has had more problems since he got done than he did during it. Drs are not being as helpful as I think they should and DH is not forceful enough when talking to them. It is rather hard for me to insist on things-he feels the pain, not me and needs to describe it to the dr. Men-why can't they express themselves instead of sitting here moaning and groaning!
Ah, on to cheerier stuff. Got up at 6 am so we could be off by 7 am to a big commuity yard sale. We were about 5th in line waiting to get in when a county trooper came by and told all of us we would have to move-we could not sit off the road in the turn lane but in the grass! We went on up and parked in a parking lot within the community and had no sooner gotten parked there and was waiting on a shuttle when they started letting everyone in. That rather ticked us off! We still got a spot in the handicapped lot for DH and I bought several things to use to decorate in the park. I also bought a nice set of towels for $2 for my friend, Ruthie.
Our mh is still in the shop-it needs new plug wires and they will arrive Mon and be installed. We are trying to get it ready for our traveling this summer.
Well, I think I need a nap so I am off here and heading to the couch!!!

Linda: You are doing exceptionally well with all the stress you are under. I'm so depressed these days about Vic's health that I started to reintroduce flour into my diet and have paid no attention to water. Not good. Still praying for your daughter.

Gail

Enjoy each day.

Today met with SIL to have lunch She wanted to eat at a Chinese restaurant which we did. I think my choices were pretty healthy but will check the nutrition tracker to be sure. I know that I did stick with water, brown rice, etc. We took a short walk afterwards so that was also something I needed to do.

Good Morning:

Vic finished the federal taxes yesterday, so only the state taxes are yet to be done. Since most of that is just copying stuff from the federal forms it shouldn't be too bad. Looks like we'll get them in on time. I still say we should have someone do it. We have the maximum tax taken from everything so we will get a big check back from the feds.


Pat: You are always so cheerful. What a blessing you are! So happy things are going well for you.

Sandy: Always in my prayers.

Gail

Enjoy each day.

Another busy but beautiful day. Had a snafu with our sprinkler system this morning-I managed to get them going correctly (at least as good as I could do). I managed to get my bit of ironing done and then was off to the gym. When I got home, Vicky was waiting on me and we got our reservations made for Fort Meyers trip 1st of May. I had to go pick up DH's medicine at W-M. That is never fun-I do mostly mail order, but hopefully he will soon be able to go off this one. I needed to go to Publix-they had a $5 off coupon on purchase of $30 and a $10 off coupon on a $50 gas card so wanted to take advantage of both of those things.
By the time I got home it was nearly 12:30 and I had to rush to get things put away, steam my kitchen floor clean and get a shower! I was done with that a few min after 1 and waiting on friends to arrive. This afternoon we had our final gathering of our camping friends. One couple from Canada just arrived on Mon so it was good to see them again. They no longer are able to spend the winter, they come down for a month in the spring and one in the fall. Another couple made it who we weren't sure of-he has lung cancer and isn't doing well so we were happy to see them. We really don't expect him to make it to fall - he has been fighting for 2 years now and it is amazing he has made it this long-he was hospitalized numerous times this winter and 2 weeks ago his wife didn't think he would make it 24 hours and here he was today. Goes to show only the Lord knows the day and hour for each of us.
After a nice lunch at our Canadian friend's daughter and s-i-l's restaurant, 3 couples came back to our home and we played some pegs and jokers and those guys beat the gals 2 out of 3 games!!! We must have felt sorry for them.
I guess you can say we are making up for lost time-it is wearing me out, but I am loving every minute of it!!!!!

No more news regarding the results of daughter's tests. The doctor is still convinced it is cervical cancer for my daughter. She has a few dr appointments soon where we will know how far along the cancer has progressed and the treatment plan.
